Our concert staging of Kevin Puts’ cinematic Silent Night, the true story of the 1914 Christmas truce, is now open. See some of what our audiences have been saying on social media so far…
Can’t remember the last time I was so moved by a piece of theatre. Blown away tonight by the sheer visceral power of #ONSilentNight. Bravissimi tutti.

@Opera_North #SilentNight was superb! Beautiful music & simple, clever staging. V moving. Audience was utterly absorbed; could have heard a pin drop. Nicholas Kok & Orchestra superb. And this was just the dress rehearsal!

#ONSilentNight what an emotional rollercoaster! I laughed, I cried ! Thought provoking. Wonderful staging. The sleep chorus was absolutely stunning.

Wow. This was brilliant: very moving and beautifully sung. Was great to fully hear the expansive sound of the orchestra in the huge Town Hall space.
